The recurring theme, Augustine and Time, holds sway in both academic and popular works. However, most of the efforts focus on his Confessions XI, unfortunately, neglecting the rest of his corpus. Even in a cursory reading of it, a twin factor stands out and it permeates the entire corpus: The cluster of temporal notions he uses holds many more beyond the concepts of time and eternity and, its being posited in the cognition of the human mind. This serendipitous observation led to this hermeneutical probe into the inextricable link between temporality and human cognition that Augustine holds.
